Postbridge Clapper Bridge

Postbridge clapper bridge sits over the East Dart river and has done since the bridge was believed to have been built in the 13th century. It was built to enable pack horses to cross the river, carrying tin to Tavistock. The clapper bridge which is a Grade II structure is still complete, and stands alongside another road bridge, a Grade II listed structure built in the 1780s.
